Starting over for the 101st time...

Well, here I go again. I've had two successful attempts at weight loss in the past 18 years and have gained every bit of weight back. I use food as a coping mechanism and need to find better alternatives for depression and stress. These commercials that say "curb your appetite, take this fat burner", make me laugh. I strongly believe that a majority of people eat for the same reasons I do...they are not hungry, they just need something to help them cope. Food is an addiction, like alcohol, ...
Well, here I go again. I've had two successful attempts at weight loss in the past 18 years and have gained every bit of weight back. I use food as a coping mechanism and need to find better alternatives for depression and stress. These commercials that say "curb your appetite, take this fat burner", make me laugh. I strongly believe that a majority of people eat for the same reasons I do...they are not hungry, they just need something to help them cope. Food is an addiction, like alcohol, cigarettes, etc. I want to eat to live, not live to eat! I'm a great preacher but to use my own advice is a different story. Right now I'm looking to help others, but I want someone to help me. We all need to be accountable. Being a mom, I find I am so often doing for others and not for myself. If I have to report my progress to someone on a regular basis will help....it has to.

You're so right on many levels. We do eat to fulfill a void, at least I do. I don't be hungry but I will eat. We also as women, wives, mothers, daughters, sisters, friends, tend to put everyone else before ourselves. We need to change that, we can't fulfill everyone else's needs when we are empty.
